Backtrace shows:

Looking at ~/.gnu-emacs shows:

;; 8. Load package [REQUIRED].
(if (file-exists-p "/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/rmailgen.el")
    (require 'rmailgen))

This section of code is looking at another install of emacs.  The emacs
installation in question (the one reporting error on) has no
rmailgen.el* in its file tree.

(Note: I would think that the installation routine shouldn't assume that
emacs will be installed under /usr/share/emacs/.)
